Communicate your research through film - bookings open for September course dates

last modified Sep 07, 2016 09:59 AM
This September, Cambridge University researchers have the opportunity to take part in a week-long humanities and social sciences' film school on "Communicating research with film/audio clips".

Learn to think digitally and visually and to communicate your research
in short films. The product is yours. You will create a research film
for yourself, your institute, research lab, a research community or
wider public audiences.

PLEASE NOTE: Participation in this course is restricted to University of Cambridge staff and students

Workshops are from 10am till 5.30pm at the McDonald Institute

14th September, Wednesday, all-day audio digital training, basic in
the morning, advanced in the afternoon;

15th September, Thursday, all-day "Directing, Concept and Filming"
intermediate film instruction and production of a research design for
your film clip; and

16th, Friday, and 17th September, Saturday, "Animation, Filming and
Editing", both are all-day workshops for advanced finishing production
with an animator present to teach how to include animation to
communicate your research.

Again, you will learn to conceive and present your research visually
to colleagues and to a wider public audience.

We are a network of researchers at the University of Cambridge who are interested in how the use of digital tools is transforming scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. This transformation spans both the content and practice of humanities research, as the diffusion of digital technologies opens up new fields of study and generates research questions which breach traditional disciplinary boundaries.
